    Thumbs down Extreme differences in widget results N97 / N97 Mini

    While testing a WRT widget, a GPS tracker that posts its data to the internet,
    I was astounded by the difference in results the phones gave me.

    I activated the tracker on both phones on the same point and same time, kept them
    each in one of my hands while driving in the car, a couple of kilometers away,
    and disabled them at the same point and same time to go see what the results were.

    I was so extremely pleased with the results of the N97 Mini, I could jump a hole
    in the roof. But then, a thundercloud came over that made me not-want-to.
    The N97 had only drawn a couple of measly lines, and returned a load of inaccurate
    locations to the server, where the mini had been working flawlessly.

    This raises a couple of thoughts.
    Is my N97 malfunctioning?
    Is the GPS receiver in the N97 different from the N97 Mini?
    Does my widget cause this behaviour? (exactly the same versions on both)

    I must honestly say I'm quite unhappy with the N97 anyway, wish I could exchange
    it for another mini, or maybe the N900. (Does anyone know if I can?)

    Here are the testresults:

    The blue line is the N97 Mini, the red are the N97.
    Compare and fall off your seat.

    - Jasper out.

    Re: Extreme differences in widget results N97 / N97 Mini

    Am not a Widget guy, but can sure tell you that my N97 GPS works as accurately as one can expect ( with very little minor deviations a little too rare to notice). So am not sure how you have this HUGE diviation with the N97 with your widget.
    Havent used N97 mini, so dont know about it.

    That's exactly what I figured. "HOW THE %#@#%#".

    After repeated tests today, my N97 still keeps hanging far below the N97 Mini's results.
    -far far far-.

    Maybe I have a malfunctioning N97, or it really is my code.

    Would you be so kind to give it a try?
    Will post a stable testversion later today, but first, I'll add some proper UI.

    Those of you having an N97, please try my tracker widget, to
    help me find out why my N97 creates SUCH a different plotline
    than my N97 mini. (Yes, it still does.)


    Thanks
